Swagbucks: Get $55 for trying out Blue Apron

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Get $55 back in Swagbucks for trying out a Blue Apron food subscription plan.

Blue Apron is a recipe-delivery/food-planning service which delivers fresh ingredients weekly for you to cook and prepare meals yourself. Swagbucks typically offers a $5 bonus for trying out the service, and now it’s increased to $55. Blue Apron allows you to cancel the plan at any time so there’s no long-term subscription here, just a weekly cost will be charged unless you cancel.

Also, if you have a Privacy.com account, go to your Offers section to activate a $10 off deal. Use the virtual card number from Privacy to get an additional $10 savings. (HT: Luke)

The Fine Print

  • SB will appear as Pending for 32 days. (Reader says they should show up as pending after a couple of hours.)
  • Offer only available to new Blue Apron customers.
  • If you make a purchase without having a genuine interest in the product/service being offered, any SB awarded will be revoked and your Swagbucks account may be terminated for violation of our terms requiring honest and legitimate member behavior. 

Our Verdict

I’m honestly a bit confused by the details of this offer, but here’s my best guess: sign up for any Blue Apron plan and you’ll get $55 cash back from Swagbucks. The cheapest Blue Apron plan is a discounted rate of $24.45 for your first week for 2 meals for 2 people. (After the first week, price will be $51.95 per week.) This means that the $55 Swagbucks more than covers your first week’s cost.

There’s also a signup offer on Blue Apron to get 5 meals with your first two orders. Maybe that means that if you pay for your second week (cost of at least $51.95) you’ll get a bonus 5 meals free. Hopefully someone who understands Blue Apron better than me will chime in and explain in more detail. Should be a nice opportunity to try out the service if it’s something that interests you.

Update: Readers have clarified, the way it works is that the first two weeks get the discounted $24.45 rate and the 5 free meals just means the $55 in Swagbucks money (since a meal is typically $11). It’s not clear if you need to keep the subscription for two weeks (which would end up as 8 free meals + $6 moneymaker for the first two orders) or if you can get the $55 Swagbucks from even a single week. Some have gotten the Swagbucks pending right away which might indicate that even a single $24.45 week triggers the Swagbucks.

A couple things to keep in mind:

  • Remember to cancel if you decide to discontinue the subscription. Website states clearly that there’s no obligation and you can skip or cancel any time.
  • Bear in mind that some people end up having problems either with the portal tracking or with Swagbucks deactivating their account for reasons which aren’t clear, so keep the risks in mind.

If you’re new to Swagbucks then please read our review. You can also get a bonus of up to $13 by using a referral link.

you should mention that you can redeem $22 in swagbucks for $25 gift card. 12% off the first gift card every month. I usually do this for an eBay gift card since its hard to get those at above 5% off.

Little bit more risk of but I tend to click on things every day or 2. Have had an account for 5+ years?

Check your shop activity it shows pending where it would had you clicked through as a shopping portal rather than where the typical offers show. Mine showed pending in a couple hours.

There are $40 off / free shipping links like https://www.blueapron.com/users/sign_up?cvosrc=email.Email+marketing.Email+-+4+Free+Meals+-+Acquisition+-+9%2F19%2F16&utm_campaign=EMNEWSEN091916_4Meals&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Email+Marketing and someone mentioned that it could be stackable with portals. Anyone knows how to do that?

This one has the 5 meal free offer which isn’t bad, and as someone mentioned you also have the $40 off offers. From personal experience, if you 1. Click SB link to get to blue aprons site, and 2. use other people’s referral (for which you got first week free) by clickig the referral link from email or pasting to a different browser tab, without closing the first window, you still get the SB sign up bonus stacked with first week free. My SO is genuinely using them, and I used her referral link when the SB bonus was 3500. I got my first week free and 3500 bonus. For people who do not wish to use blue apron long term, this may be a better offer as you can select those 4 people meals (retail $71 ?) For first week and get it for free, along with the SB bonus). Obviously this is risky, so use caution and evaluate if you want to risk it.

In addition, I have a question: when SB portals say “one time use offer” (not this case, this time is new blur apron user), does it mean for each time offer shows up in your account you can use it once? Or does it mean you can only use it once despite it showing up again later in your account? I have the Gillette offer coming back again so curious if anyone has DP. Thanks.

With MyPoints, when they would make the same offer over and over and state one-time use only, it meant one time use for that particular offering. So you could get the offer each time they offered it. Same company owns Swagbucks, so my guess is that it would be the same as MyPoints.

Thanks. Good point. If I try something I will report back

I’d love to see if your trick works this time. Do you mind sharing your referral?

My SO says thank you 🙂 Here is the link. (she had to enter full name and email to generate it, so please let me know if you aren’t able to change your name etc.)

Here is her link. Hopefully it works for you and it’s a win-win for both of us.

If you make a purchase without having a genuine interest in the product/service being offered, any SB awarded will be revoked and your Swagbucks account may be terminated for violation of our terms requiring honest and legitimate member behavior.

What does genuine interest mean? I have a few meal delivery services and rotate between them every other week. If I do Blue Apron for one week and then pause it for a month would that be construed as having a lack of “genuine interest”? Seems like the terms have been made vague like this on purpose with the intent of not honoring such offers arbitrarily.

No one knows for sure, Swagbucks is a black box when it comes to policies like that. I had an issue in the past with a Bluehost offer where I canceled service after a couple of months and they clawed back the rewards despite that message not being showed in that offer at the time.

SB can be revoked without a genuine interest? Another reason to hate Swagbucks. TOTALLY at their discretion.

Be wary of the Blue Apron offer. I did this offer & somehow my account was labeled a duplicate account (not true though a family member has an account so perhaps IP address is the same?) and my account with over $125 in SB was cancelled.

I selected the 2-meal 2-people plan for 24.45/week. I will do this for 2 weeks, and then cancel the subscription after I run out of the discount. Got $55 swagbucks pending. Essentially 8 free meals plus $6 free cash. This is awesome!

Don’t get confused, Doc. 5 free meals simply means that they offer $55 discount for your subscription in the first 2 weeks. 1 meal is $10.99 so 5 meals are $55.

Pat

$20 doesn’t seem too bad for 8 meals, however skipping the third or fourth week’s orders (inside the 32 days) might be construed as not having a genuine interesting in the service. Cancelling seems like an even more definite statement of disinterest.

Saw this deal was 4500SB a week ago (and was 1000SB a month ago). And I’ve had 3500SB two months before. Seems the deal refresh every a few months and don’t limit one per lifetime, though you must be a new subscriber of blue apron each time and each address can be signed up only once. Wondering weather I missed a 4500SB or I was lucky not to redeem it when it was 1000 lower than current one.

How are they defining “new Blue Apron customers”? If I made an account before but never ordered anything, I am an existing customer or a new customer?

Stack Alert!
I think when I do this deal I’ll be trying the first week free referral link method, but to anyone who is going to pay, privacy.com is offering a stackable deal.

Find blue apron in the offers section, then activate and use their virtual card. It is a $10 credit that will adjust the price before it charges your bank. Also, if you’re just signing up, you can get a $5 credit through a referral link (can be used anywhere).

Since Blue Apron doesn’t charge until a few days before the meal ships rather than when you start your new account, and Privacy.com’s offer is a ticking clock, how did you get them to line up to work together?

Luke
Luke

Sorry for not replying quickly!

I don’t think the whole “expiring” thing is actually enforced. I signed up for Apron 3 or 4 days ago, and the charge just went through today with $10 credit applied. I also activated another offer to test if they disappear like 5 days ago, and I still have that card in my account. Even if your charge takes a week to come through, you should still be good.

Yep, that’s what privacy.com said. I was just charged a few days ago, got the $10 back today. Thanks!

When I tried to check out, I saw this “Your first two orders will be discounted $27.50 each. You’ll receive future deliveries at $51.95 per week.” So, to me, it’s more like you need to keep the subscription for two weeks, which would end up as 8 free meals + $6 moneymaker for the first two orders. So, I will skip this one. Thanks!
